People wanting to protect their craft and their livelihood will always be a minority and they will always have formidable opposition.
Until they band together, organize and lobby like the RIAA and MPAA.
Both masses of people and/or big money gets attention when they talk while fringe element whining gets largely ignored. Since the people trying to protect their craft don't tend to have money the only option they have is to organize and present a bigger voice.
If you don't have money, then masses of people is the next recourse hence the phrase "Power to the People" and an example would be the NRA where a mere 5 million members somehow manage to get their way when 300+ million other citizens mostly disagree with them but they are organized with a collective voice which makes all the difference.
